#valtteri bottas

Okay I went full crazy hyperfixation mode and decided to factcheck what the drivers said their heights were in the Grill the Grid video based on this photo of them walking side by side.
Tumblr media
Long story short : I had to correct perspective, lense deformation and track curvature the best I could based on the assumption that Lewis and Kevin are the same height and Zhou just slightly taller. I used Lewis as a benchmark for the whole process because as he’s in the center of the frame he’s least subject to the deformations. Then I calculated a cm/pixel ratio based on his presumed real height and height in pixels in the image and used that to calculate everybody else’s supposed real height (also trying to take fluffy hair into account when necessary).
Here’s what I found (height stated in the video compared to calculations) :

The purple box is Lewis’ height. I used it to calibrate the perspective. There was a difference of 2px between Lewis and Zhou which is roughly equal to 1cm which should be their actual height difference which means the perspective should be correct.
Valtteri is much shorter than he’s supposed to be which is weird because Zhou is the right height and Lance taller than he said so if it’s image deformation I don’t get what kind. Seb is also shorter than he said, as is Ocon, but Ocon is visibly slouching so that explains it.
Tumblr media
Alonso is slightly taller than he said he was. Both Charles and George are the right height which exposes Carlos, who’s in-between them and shorter than he said he is. Nothing to say on Lewis because he was the benchmark.
Tumblr media
Max is the right height. Sergio is taller than he said. I used the purple box that shows Lewis height to check it and he fits in it perfectly (messy hair aside) which confirms it. Lando did indeed not have a growth spurt, he’s not 176cm. Both Pierre and Yuki are the right heights.
Tumblr media
Latifi isn’t 186cm but he also said in the video none of them tall drivers were standing straight. Apparently Albon didn’t get the memo because he is 186cm. Mick and Kevin were also correct.
Of course Daniel wasn’t there so yep.
Here’s the full picture for reference

K bye !

OMG, I missed Grill the grid so much. Drivers ranking each others height and making a debate out of it who's taller or shorter makes me laugh😂
Favorite parts:
Lewis throwing Esteban's name over the board because he can't reach the top of the board
Everyone roasting Yuki's height
Valtteri making literal art instead of a ranking
The host saying to Lance that Max claims he's 0.5 cm taller than Lance (Max saying other wise🤣)
Charles confused that he's taller than Daniel (me too Charles, I thought that Daniel was 1.82 actually) + Seb about to go to the Ferrari engineers to claim the truth.
Lando being 1.76 m (yeah Lando, sure you are😏)

I've decided to be a nicer person from here on out. Just ship cars, support Lewis, adore Pierre, root for Charles, buy pictures of Valtteri's naked bum and vibe with Mercedes. Generally be chill and nonconfrontational😌....*warning: this is likely only gonna last until the next time Lewis is insulted and I've resulted to scorched earth tactics*
